Wide strokes of white and black spread out on the canvas raw, lines of graphite, dig furrows that are more frail and solid orange, mustard and ochre, create spaces vibrant. The paintings of the DOMUS, the first exhibition of the artist Miville at the galerie Alexandre Motulsky-Falardeau, evoke the houses that soar, make spirals or bend, as the silhouettes dancing.

A native of the Bas-Saint-Laurent, Jennifer Tremblay, aka Miville, painted during the cold season and created costumes for tv during the warm season. An alternation which creates a balance between the hustle and bustle of film sets and the quiet of the workshop. In front of his works, where white often dominates, as can be imagined in the middle of the pigments and brushes, while outside a winter storm is booming.

The gesture is at the heart of its practice. “I have an idea in your head, but when I project it on canvas, it is in a momentum quite spirited. It overcomes my natural instinct to want to put things.” Despite the border disheveled canvases raw, the droplets of paint out of the brush and the footsteps marked by the wear of its brushes of painter, the works are finely balanced. They have a clarity, a clarity, a brilliance reminiscent of certain paintings of Joan Mitchell or Marcelle Ferron.

The most recent production of Miville is inspired by the painting, design and architecture of years 60, while echoing a step more personal : moving to a new house, with his daughter and his spouse, a certain Marc Labrèche. “Painting, for me, it is quite visceral, emotional, so it is all connected to what I saw”, she explains. “Unlike my last expo, which was my child and that was a lot in the roundness and organic shapes, I’m in a phase where I am very interested in the architecture and it is reflected in shapes more geometric, straight lines, angles.”

We are in front of his canvas of Our Lady, inspired by the chapel Notre-Dame-du-Haut, designed by Le Corbusier, whose volumes are reminiscent of the sails swollen by the wind from the off. Face it, Chair Ruhlmann is a tribute to a chair of a fisherman drawn by Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann. If the titles give clues and make you want to go and see the subject of the inspiration of the artist, the works are transcriptions free, deconstructed and expressive Miville is completely appropriate.

The chairs reappear in several paintings, such as a pattern. “”As a desire to settle in the hubbub,” said my lover.” The small orange chair of Summer House, a small room, is like an anchor among the large, solid unbleached. “I looked at some of the magazines that showed full of different houses and this little chair in a house was wide and white, open on the outside, brought a human warmth” evokes Miville.

The costume designer has worked with live models, many years ago. “I loved the excitement of the changes of rapid exposures, she notes. I want there to be a gesture and a single line sensitive in the drawing”. His sense of line, in the costumes of the tv series Breaks, has just marked the spirits. The roadmap also includes the first seasons of District 31 and House the blue, to come this winter.

Only work painted on linen cloth (darker than the web gross), Boulevard Queen announces a new path of exploration. Unlike other canvases mounted on the frame, it is simply nailed to the wall, as when the painter is working on it. “When I do frame, I can choose to keep only the top part, for example, she said. It allows me to rethink the composition.”

The Hearth, a huge, is gloriously stretched by ropes in front of one of the windows of the gallery. A home in a canvas, a canvas in a window, it loop the loop.
